Entering the silence

“We all need silence. We particularly need the silence of nature, for it is in nature that we have our roots. Sometimes, when you are alone in a forest or up in the mountains, you feel as though you were being carried back into a distant past, into an era in which human beings were in communion with the forces and the spirits of nature. And if the call of a bird or the sound of a waterfall is heard, it is as though these very sounds were part of the silence: rather than destroying it, they emphasize and contribute …

Into the light

white lotus in the light

I speak to you only of yourselves, of realities that exist within you. Even if you are still not aware of their existence and do not fully understand what I am referring to, I know that through my words I am contacting an entity whose only wish is to come into the light. This entity can be compared to a lotus that begins to develop underwater before blossoming on the surface. Things are born, take shape and begin to grow in the darkness of the subconscious. By the time they rise to awareness, they are no longer in their early stage …

Aquarius -a new era

The coming era of Aquarius will be an era of knowledge, but not the dry, intellectual knowledge we have everyday with people who are educated, even erudite, but not alive. The symbol of Aquarius is an image of wisdom: an old man holding a pitcher from which he pours the waters of life. The knowledge of Aquarius is the knowledge that brings life, that awakens and stirs us to life. People may know all about germs and microbes, they may know about the stars and the planets, but they don’t know  how to live.. The water pouring from the old …

Loving the divine in others

Nothing is more poetic than the beginning of a love affair. A man and a woman meet, they smile at each other, exchange a few words or notice each other from afar and suddenly they feel inspired and become poetical within. But as soon as this love becomes physical, their feelings of wonder start to fade. How many people have noticed this! Yes, they have noticed it, but they do not draw any lessons from it: they make no effort to protect their blossoming love by remaining in the subtle regions for as long as possible. Through curiosity and greed, men and women seek to go out immediately and explore the terrain, and even what lies beneath! Then, of course, things are no longer the same. They do not appreciate each other in the same way and are no longer in wonder, one for the other, as they know each other too well in situations which were not always the most attractive. Why do they not try to keep a certain distance between them so as to live as long as possible in the world of beauty, poetry, and light?

Love the creator, the One who is the origin of all life,and you will feel him manifesting in every creature. It is he, the One, whom you will love in others, and only he can feel the longings of your heart and soul. So many men and women, famous throughout history for their amorous adventures have had tragic destinies precisely because they did not understand this truth! The beings of flesh and blood you claim to love or to be looking for are only intermediaries, conductors meant to transmit divine energies. If you wish to continue to love them, think …

Love is stronger than death

No one can deny how painful it is to lose a loved one. But love allows us to overcome the pain. You think the more you love someone, the more you will suffer from such a separation. At the time, you will, without a doubt. But if you have truly loved someone, in time another kind of relationship develops between you, and you feel their being as a constant presence. And at night, in your sleep, you are also with them. In the morning, you may not remember meeting, because the journeys the soul makes during sleep rarely reach awareness, …

Universal, unconditional love

Seek to help and show love for all human beings without expecting anything in return, because they are all our brothers and sisters. In doing so, the reward is already given to you in that inner sense of expansion and that extraordinary sensation of warmth that fill you when you love. This is a marvellous reward; life contains none greater. Your heart can then be likened to a flowing spring. Human beings always expect to be rewarded for what they do. Those who have understood the secret of love don’t even expect receiving anything in return, for they already have …

Be patient and you will live a long life

Be patient and you will live a long life. You might say, ‘But that is not possible, you need so much energy to put up with difficult situations and with difficult people!’ No, on the contrary, you waste the most energy when you are impatient. Calm and patience enhance vitality and prolong life. People who explode and then say, ‘Ah! That feels better!’ do not realize that what they consider to be better is actually a great loss. They should analyse themselves to find out what it is within them that feels better – is it their higher nature or …

Love is an energy from on high

Love is not just the feeling humans have for one another. Love is an energy that comes from on high, an energy that has the same quintessence as the sun. The task of men and women is to take this energy into themselves and allow it to circulate in them in such a way that it then returns to the heights, from where it came. If it does not circulate correctly, it means that many impurities have collected within them, because they have not put enough effort into controlling their instincts and passions. So instead of this energy rising again, …

Music is the breathing of the soul

Everything in nature sings and vibrates: all creatures emit vibrations which are diffused around them in the form of musical waves. This is why it is true to say that everything in nature is music. There is music in a rushing stream, in the murmur of a spring, in the patter of raindrops, in the roar of a cataract and the ceaseless ebb and flow of the ocean waves. There is music in the voice of the wind, in the rustling of leaves and the chirping of birdsong. And the music of nature constantly arouses and stimulates the musical element …

Two ways of love

Someone will say, ‘I love’… Yes, they love, of course, but do they ask themselves about the nature of their love? Do they give a thought to the fact that there are two kinds of love: the self-serving kind and the disinterested kind? Disinterested love does not expect anything from others, it does not fret, it does not cling to them, and it does not trouble them. It is a gushing spring, which gives ceaselessly without being concerned about who will come to draw from it. It is pleased to share its water freely, whereas self-seeking love does the opposite, …

Passing into the light

When my parents died I read the same passage at their memorial services- part of a lecture the master gave on death and the after life. Here is a short extract.  I hope it will be of comfort to anyone suffering from a bereavement. It explains how we can best help our loved ones who have died:    SJJ “Let the dead go their way in peace.Don’t cling to your dying relations and friends, don’t let your sorrow at their departure hold them down and, above all, don’t try to communicate with them by calling them back. This only troubles …
